Songs About Extraterrestrials

The argument about whether extraterrestrial life exists has been passionately fought since humans first became aware that Earth was not the only planet in the universe. I'm not one who believes the conspiracy theories about governments hiding evidence of alien life, but I certainly don't discount the possibility of life on other planets. In fact, I believe it's more likely that alien life does exist. I haven't seen convincing evidence yet, but it's certainly a fascinating subject to think about. Musicians seem especially attracted to the idea and popular music has no shortage of alien-inspired songs. For this playlist I've selected the first 15 extraterrestrial-inspired tracks that came to mind. What would you add?
